The Brixham Battery Heritage Group was founded in 1999 by the late Ron Coleman. We are a group of volunteers helping to restore the Brixham coastal defence battery built in 1940, and provide on-site information to the general public and other organisations. The group uses the Artillery Training Section (ATS) hut as its education centre and museum after having secured a 25 year lease from Torbay council.
The dedicated group helps to maintain and restore the grounds of Brixham Battery. This includes The ATS building, War Shelter, Ammunition Tunnels, Generator Rooms, Gun Emplacements, Battery Observation Post (B.O.P) and other structures around the site. As well as maintaining the Museum and grounds we educate schools and the general public about the history and operation of the site during WWII.
The Battery is open to the public free on charge at the following times:
Sunday, Monday and Friday
from 2pm - 4pm
Thursday afternoons from 29th July till the end of August.
If you are visiting Brixham this is a must do outing ..
